A woman on the run.
Miami socialite Emma Garcia has been running from who she is her entire life. When she witnesses a horrific crime, she goes on the run. In desperation, she answers an ad for a chef on a remote horse farm in the middle of nowhere, Florida. It seems like the perfect plan until she figures out what to do with her secrets. The only thing she doesn’t count on is being attracted to the rugged cowboy who owns the place. Whenever he comes around the only thing she can focus on is his seductive voice and sinful body.

And her past is about to catch up with her.
Former Marine Caleb Ryder hires Emma even though he knows she’s lying about her identity. He desperately needs the help, but he also doesn’t have the heart to turn away a woman so obviously in need. After being burned by a woman once, he doesn’t let that deter his mission to claim Emma’s body and heart. Now that she’s his, he’ll face any threat to protect her, no matter how deadly.

Dorsey’s Review

4 Alpha Cowboy Stars!!

Emma Garcia has been trapped in a forced relationship with powerful crime lord Ricardo and when she witnesses a murder she goes on the run, hiding from the powerful man who’d been blackmailing her for years. She changes her appearance and lands on a rural ranch taking a position as a cook until she can earn enough money to move on.

Former Marine Caleb Ryder couldn’t think straight the minute he laid eyes on Emma. She was his “fantasy” woman come alive” but he could tell right off that Emma was not being completely honest. He knew she was running scared and hiding something, so he decides to give her the position and do what he can to protect her.

I don’t want to say too much because this is a short book, only 200 pages or so, but I will say the sexual tension between Caleb and Emma was off the charts. I loved how possessive and protective Caleb was of Emma. All-in-all a fun enjoyable read with a hot alpha cowboy!!
